Hotels in Virginia are just different than hotels in many other parts of the country. Very few seem to have much size to them, and even fewer have multiple beds that are larger than doubles. So when you travel with a family, getting two queen beds is a real challenge. The Holiday Inn Express was one that met those requirements, so thumbs up there.
The location also worked out on our trip, which is a good thing, and the staff was friendly as well. The colors were a bit odd, but that is not really their fault - many of these quick-serve hotels are going to this strange palette these days.
Right off the freeway is typically a good spot for a hotel, and this is no exception - the only bad part is that they are located right next to a machinery supply plant of some sort. Not a lot of noise or anything, just a strange location, and when traveling you don't always want to leave things in that sort of spot. We had no problems, it was just different than the downtown area not far away is all.
Though some have reported problems with their rooms or cleanliness, we had no issues at all - great first night on our trip.
